Caring Hands Candleholder

$13.00

Offer up your hopes, wishes, thoughts, prayers, meditations, anything you choose to call them, with this sweet candleholder with cupped hands. The hands are cupped in a way that is traditional to Eastern dance and culture. It is made in Bangladesh and marketed and sold through CORR-The Jute Works.

CORR-The Jute Works' believes in "trade not aid," and is a nonprofit helping women in Bangladesh earn money for their goods. The organization's roots go back to 1971 following the end of the country's War of Independence, when the Christian Organization for Relief and Rehabilitation started helping war widows, war victims, and other marginalized women become more self-sufficient and less dependent on "relief and sympathy." The Jute Works came shortly thereafter as an artisan collective for jute art.

The candleholder comes in a handmade paper box. It does not include a candle. It's made of terra cotta and measures approximately 3.5"x3"x1.5". Fair trade certified.
